interesting but chopped to hell
this is a cool little set, with the 2nd ever Main Ten during a decent Dark Star, but there is just too much missing to give a good rating...

i just started listening to this cryptial envelopment and it is one of the best i've ever heard, so i'm going to give this show a five star just because i think people should listen and comment. i would put it somewhere in the four point nine seven three stars

'69 Dead fans will want this show!
Sound is pretty good, except for Dark Star through the cut in St. Stephen, which is a little more hissy but definitely listenable. Too bad The Other One is cut because the surviving Cryptical > It's A Sin is a monster. Worth the download for this alone, plus the nice slide work and Pigpen vocals on Hard to Handle. Dark Star fans will want to grab this one with an early Main Ten jam sandwiched between the verses. Nice Lovelight rave-up. Three-star rating takes into account the degraded sound in the middle of the tape, but the playing is 4-4.5 even for '69.

?First Main Ten
Some hidden gems in what we have of this show. You can hear a primitve Main Ten jam during the Dark Star space (coincidentally starting just past the 10 minute mark, and lasting not much more than 10 seconds). Not the best quality...
